OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police are investigating a crash that left one person dead and another in critical condition after a pickup truck slammed into a light pole.

The crash happened around 1:30 p.m. Sunday near 112th and Q streets in west Omaha.

Omaha Police Sgt. Doug Klein says there wasn’t any sign the truck tried to slow down before veering off the road and hitting the pole.

A passenger was thrown from the truck and died later at the Nebraska Medical Center. The truck’s driver was initially trapped in the vehicle before being taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Officials didn’t immediately release the victims’ names Sunday afternoon.
